Agree, my 10-35 is one of my favorites!

Are there any potential pot metal nasties laying in ambush ? Or was pot metal not used in this machine? And any idea of how shippable this is, weight wise ? MANY THANKS for any info !!

There was a first design and a second design to this machine. The first design was sort of a disaster and was recalled. This looks like a second design from what I can see but we really need more pics to be sure.

The mechanism is quite robust, but very complicated and quite difficult to adjust properly if out of whack.

If I had to guess on weight, I'd say maybe 100-150 lbs. Just a guess, though.

Any ideas anyone on what the shiny metal, heavily bolted, reproducer is? I don't think I ever remember seeing one like it.

I am pretty sure that machine belonged to Greg Bogantz. Greg wanted to see if he could develop a better orthophonic reproducer using only materials available in 1925. He made a number of prototypes. I visited him a number of times and he demoed those reproducers for me. I believe that is what you are seeing in the photo.

Thank You, George !

No fragile pot metal that I noticed going through mine, and for price to ship I'd have to guess around $200. Could get pretty expensive to ship, but this is one of my favorite machines and I'm sure you'd enjoy it.

Hat's in the ring ! I've always wanted an orthophonic with a metal horn. Maybe it's my time.

Many Thanks !!

You won't regret it. Check all the wiring and contact Carlton (Electrolaman) about a replacement rubber kit and service info, as well as tips on how to renew the "grab" of the turntable which is necessary for proper changing without shattering records.

Between Greg, Carlton, and I we can probably walk you through any issues. It may be tedious to get everything serviced and adjusted, but once done, you will love this machine. Of course, if this was Bogantz' machine, it will likely be in pretty good order already!
